Senator threatens government shutdown for the border wall

A new Senate campaign ad from Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) states that he will fight to have the border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border funded, even if that means a government shutdown.

“Elect me to the Senate, and I’ll fight every spending bill that doesn’t fund that wall. And if I have to filibuster on the Senate floor, I’ll even read the King James Bible until the wall is funded,” Brooks states in a Senate campaign ad, which will soon be released throughout the Alabama.

“We’re going to build that wall, or you’ll know the name of every Republican who surrenders to the Democrats to break my filibuster. I give you my word, and I don’t give my word lightly,” he stated in the ad, titled “Build The Wall.”

The ad also uses clips of President Trump talking about the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico as he makes his case for why the a border wall is needed.

“President Trump promised a wall to keep us safe and to protect American jobs for American workers,” Brooks says in the ad, which he’s hoping will help get him elected to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions  before Trump tapped him to serve as the head of the Justice Department.
